Hello,

The customization is possible if you can locate the file that contains the information about the Initial screen.

You may contact Micro Focus PSO services and they should be able to customize the tool for you.

There is no need to manually customize Octane login page. There is a dedicated site parameter called LOGIN_PAGE_NOTICE that allows entering free text in HTML - exactly for this type of use you mentioned. See more at https://admhelp.microfocus.com/octane/en/latest/Online/Content/AdminGuide/params.htm

Also you get much higher chance of getting an answer in Octane forum - https://community.softwaregrp.com/t5/ALM-Octane-User-Discussions/bd-p/NGABETAGeneralBetaForum.

@leobor LOGIN_TEXT_NOTICE parameter in Octane helped and was useful while I was doing manual authentication. However, I recently enabled SSO in Octane and found message (text) used in this parameter is useless and or did not work. 

Is there an alternate way to Setup a Splash page while SSO is enabled in Octane?

Once you switch to SSO authentication, you are not shown the regular Octane login screen but rather your IdP authentication screen. Octane just receives confirmation about your validity as a user.

Hence if you want to add any text or links to that screen, please contact your IdP admin to customize the page.

@leobor I think that would be lot of maintenance work to update IDP each time I  want to setup notification in Octane. But, Is this or can this be done from MF side to show us an example?

We use Siteminder as IDP. I belive MF also tested their SSO authentication in Siteminder.

@Liat Any thoughts on this please? 

I also opened this request in Octane forum.
